NZ struggles to recruit skilled staff - National - NZ Herald News | Global Migration | Scoop.it
New Zealand ranks seventh among the top 10 countries that are having problems finding highly skilled staff, thanks largely to the Christchurch rebuild and construction and infrastructure - New Zealand Herald
Arno Nothnagel's insight:

Survey shows 59% of bosses battle to fill jobs. The survey showed that kiwi employers highly needed experienced people in the engineering industry, skilled trades, accounting and finance staff, and management and executive positions. So if you fit in any of these work industries and you have all the experience and skills needed then it would be easy for you to find a career and start your life and future here in New Zealand.

Too little, too late for many Christchurch migrants | New Zealand Labour

Too little, too late for many Christchurch migrants | New Zealand Labour | Global Migration | Scoop.it
Plans by the Government to spend around $1.5 million a year for the next four years to employ more labour inspectors and immigration officials in the Christchurch rebuild comes too late for exploited migrant workers, says Labour’s Associate Immigration spokesperson Darien Fenton.
Arno Nothnagel's insight:

I agree with this article, but do you? I think that it is a little too late that the government only decided to act on how working migrants are being abused in the Christchurch rebuild. But though its too late, as many people say "its better late than never". I think that this would be beneficial for future Christchurch rebuild migrants and it gives migrants who are wanting to move here to New Zealand an opportunity to find good and equal paying jobs here at the New Zealand Christchurch rebuild. I do however, hope that migrants who have been victims of the Christchurch rebuild abuse get their normal pay rate back ($18 per hour).
